30-Day Goal Hitting Program
Goals. We all have them, make them, and set them aside to wither like well-intentioned heads of lettuce in the crisper drawer. It can be difficult to watch deadlines you set for yourself whoosh by, and even harder to not reach the goals you set out to achieve. We can all relate to this experience. Sometimes an unexpected project or hiccup at work prevents us from reaching quarterly goals. A family sickness can prevent us from keeping a health and wellness routine. But that doesn't mean we should stop setting goals. It just means you might need a little extra help.
Most people who earn a managerial position where they must now begin communicating with an expanded staff are not there because their communication skills are outstanding. Rather, they are really good at what they do. This skill causes them to assume the new managerial position will be easy. However, what can happen is that, inexplicably, those beneath them actually diminish in performance. Why?
When you reach out to a coach, it’s usually because you have a desire to make a change. Your desires could be business-oriented, but they could also relate to other parts of your life. Maybe you want to have a healthier lifestyle. Maybe you want to improve your work-life balance. Whatever your endgame is, a coach’s job is to help you reach it.
Women who are in leadership roles face many of the same challenges as men but tend to handle these challenges differently. They look for a coach who will listen to them and help them find the answers to the questions they have, both about themselves and about their position.
Welcome to Ask A Coach, where Rewire's Mindset Coaches respond to questions and processes that come up in coaching. In this short video, Kate Gigax takes on the question of time-management.
You’re a highly driven mortgage loan officer looking to grow your sales immensely. You’ve attended the seminars, the workshops, the luncheons. You know all about managerial techniques, and you know exactly how to be a better loan officer. In fact, you’ve probably been coached as much as a Major League team.
So when you hear mindset coach, you may be thinking you’ve heard it all before. But a mindset coach, by definition, will help you think differently so that you can act differently.
Nobody likes being told what to do.
You don’t have to be a neuroscientist to understand this. It’s just part of the human experience: once someone gives us a specific task and tells us we must accomplish it, our desire to do the task almost completely evaporates. Even if it’s something we wanted to do in the first place!
We've been sharing this video featuring Atul Gawande around the Rewire offices lately. And it's not just that he's a proponent of coaching to improve mindsets and outcomes in our work. It's that he's seeking to answer a question that is absolutely vital to the work we all do every day. The question is, "How do people improve in the face of complexity?" And for those who don't improve, how does that happen?
The truth is that no one has a 360° view of themselves. Not me and not you and not just in regards to our actual bodies: this goes for our businesses too. No matter how objectively we think we see our businesses, there will be blind spots.
In the realm of sports, most professional athletes have figured this out. This is why they rely on coaches, and many athletes have their own personal trainer/coaches in addition to official team staff.
